I missed the bridal walk in Gold Coast which is in October and only once a year. All brides get amazing swag bags! I’m so bummed and don’t want to miss any other awesome events. I went to the Chicago bridal expo and it was terrible. I felt like a piece of meat being devoured by vultures! Any events you plan on attending or have in the past? Thanks!!

BeachIU05: Isn’t it the worst!!? I found out about it while I was at my appoitment at Dimitras Bridal. I talked to a woman that said it’s her 3rd time going! She’s already married but she just takes off her wedding band, ha! At least I found my dress that day! It made up for missing the walk! Fingers crossed that there are some good events left.

Which Chicago expo did you attend? I am thinking about attending the one at Ohare. I am having a desitination wedding so I am not sure it helpful at all or just a complete waste of time. What did you not like about the expo?

I’ve been to some. A lot of times they are overly crowded with people just trying to sell all kinds of crap. It ranges from venues to weight loss/cosmetic surgery. You can win some great stuff but it is tough to find 1:1 attention. I did find my photographer at Bridal Expo, however.

I can’t stand the expos. It’s like hearding cattle with duck and weave vultures. I avoid them, swag bags could not make me go.
